Leaves are turning and falling. The skies are gray and the rain will soon change to snow. It's another fall slowly changing into winter in the Midwest. The big summer shows are a distant memory and it seems forever before the sun will return. So what's a gamer to do? Laugh at the weather and head to Winter Fantasy that's what!!
Winter Fantasy is the Midwests premiere winter convention for D&D goodness and more. We celebrate the 37th year of the show in 2013 and hope you can join us. This year we're expanding back to our roots and brining all kinds of new goodness to the show. Check out the new items below and the website. We cannot wait to see you there!!!!

PFS Special: Ruins of Bonekeep: Level 1: The Silent Grave - By Jason Bulmahn, Pathfinder Lead Designer: Just outside the city of Absalom sits the ruins of a long-forgotten siege castle. Torn down nearly to its foundation, the ruins of Bonekeep have been silent for decades, but the Pathfinders have learned of a series of dungeons beneath its crumbling white pillars, and it appears that they are not-so silent after all. Foul creatures and deadly traps await those daring to plunder its depths, but the rumor of untold wealth and forgotten relics make such dangers worth any risk. This is a Pathfinder Society special event for 3rd- through 7th-level characters (Tier 3–7). This is a deadly event designed to push characters to their limit and beyond, but with such danger comes greater reward for those that survive. (Slot 2 thru 12)
